The anticipated fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk has been a hot topic in the world of combat sports for several months. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the event, but life had a different plan, and now they will have to be patient. A few days ago, an official trailer was released, causing many to shiver. “The WBC heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury is forced to postpone the fight with unified champion Oleksandr Usyk after suffering a massive cut during sparring in Riyadh,” read the official statement from Fury’s promotional group, Queensberry Promotions.
The fight has been rescheduled for May 18, and an important clause has been added to both boxers’ contracts. If the bout is again postponed by either of the protagonists of this event, they will incur a massive financial penalty. As reported by Saudi promoter Turki Alashikh, the penalty will amount to a staggering $10 million (approximately 40 million złotys).
